Day 13 - Weird Skin, Sex Drive, And Anti-Inflammatory Foods



My skin is so weird right now, I can't even... It looks really dry and micro-flaky after I take a shower, but then when I put on some moisturizer, it looks really oily. It doesn't matter what kind of moisturizer I use. And it was perfect 3 days ago : ( I also got a couple whiteheads today. Nothing serious, though.

No new side effects. But there is one I haven't mentioned yet... now, this is going to sound strange, and it's probably not even the Accutane, but I have a much higher sex drive than I did 2 weeks ago. I don't think it has anything to do with confidence... Before this, I'd had a pretty low sex drive for quite a while.

As far as my strongly anti-inflammatory food project goes, I've come up with two really simple solutions:

I can add some powdered cayenne pepper to my coffee. It tastes really good and cayenne peppers are super anti-inflammatory. More so than most other types of hot peppers. A teaspoon of cayenne pepper can offset almost 2 quarts of milk or 1.5 lbs of gouda huh.png I can definitely do at least 2/3 or 3/4 of a teaspoon every day. I do drink 3 - 4 cups of coffee a day, after all.

Interestingly, ground ginger is just as anti-inflammatory as cayenne peppers. Next time I make myself a pitcher of tea, I'm going to add a teaspoon of ground ginger.


Hahahahahah oh dear lord! I thought I had a higher sex drive suddenly not because of accutane but because I haven't dated in a while. Maybe it's a coincedence! I don't know, but I have had a higher sex drive also its ridiculous. Especially when i'm at work I'm like OMG WHATS GOING ON. Lol

I'll skip over the sex issue and say the cayenne and ginger ideas sound grand, I shall try them both (in addition to my existing regimen)
